Mayan Doomsday 2012

I am completely fascinated with people who think the world is going to end on December 20th, 2012. It's not that I think they are stupid, it's just that I think they may have drink a little too much of the kool-aid. Hell, I love me a good conspiracy theory or doomsday movie, but I just can't seem to wrap my head around the Mayan prophecy of doom. Apparently though, the Chef can.

Last week the Chef and I decided to get a membership to Costco. We have never been fans of bix box stores but after reading how rad the former CEO of Costco was to his employees we decided to check it out. I mean who doesn't need 8 rolls of toilet paper or a 5lb tub of beef jerky. Isn't that what 'mericas all about??

As I started to make a list of things we needed, the Chef turned to me and mentioned that it may be a good idea to have a few survival items on hand, just in case. "Just in case of what?" I casually replied. You know the end of the world is coming right? 2012? You've seen the movie Amelia, you know how this ends" he said. As I looked at his face waiting to see it crack into a smile, I realized he was semi-serious. I asked him what he needed for survival of the 2012 Mayan end of the world and as he spoke, I began to write.

Two hours and two hundred dollars later, our cart was full. As we perused the aisles of Costco we discussed our plan for the imminent doom of the planet. We picked a place we would settle down and deviesed multiple ways of getting there depending on the dire situation of our home planet. Even as a non believer I began to excited for certain doom. I imagined us racing across the country in the prius, listening to news of a zombie war on our new crank radio all the while eating mustard greens and mushrooms that we foraged for in the woods.

What can I say, I'm a dreamer.
